Why Do We Need Clamps For Standing Seam Roofs?

There are many different styles and options in standing seam systems for roofing and walls of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. The benefit to any style of standing seam system is that the fasteners that hold the metal sheeting in place are hidden. This can be by clips that hold the metal in place, or fasteners positioned under a flange to keep them out of sight.

Regardless of the specifics of the standing seam metal roofing system, Fall Protection Distributors offers standing seam clamps that are ideal for attaching virtually anything to the standing seam system. Our clamps are engineered to provide exceptional hold and security to attach signs, equipment, HVAC lines, or even awnings to a metal roof or building.

Our Advantage

There are many different options for standing seam clamps on the market, but most are designed for only one of the common roof profiles. These types of clamps are not interchangeable, which means construction companies must keep an inventory of all nine basic types of clamps based on the profile of the standing seam metal system they are using on the project.

The two standing seam clamps we provide will work on most of the same panels and profiles for the standing seam systems. This means that the RC Clamp will fit about 90% of today's standing seam profiles while the RCT Clamp will fit 95% of today's profiles.  This universal fit advantage saving you time, money, and challenges in matching clamps to projects.

Distinct Design Advantages of the RoofClamps

The clamp attachments are one piece, while many other clamps are made with two pieces, creating the potential for failure at some point in time. Our clamps also have an oval tip to the screws that eliminates the risk of penetrating the panel and potentially voiding the manufacturer’s warranty on the system.

The clamps come with three attachment points, anti-seizing coarse threads for easy re-torquing, and re-attachment of the clamps if required. These clamps are ideal for large and small attachments, including awnings, signs, and all types of dishes and antennas.

Howie Scarboro, C.E.O. and co-founder of Fall Protection Distributors, L.L.C., recognized the need for continued improvements in roofing safety during the 2010 MetalCon show in Las Vegas. He joined forces with SnoBlox-Snojax, a leader in snow retention and seam clamping technology for metal roofs, to create the SSRA1 prototype. Tested by Gravitec for OSHA/ANSI certifications, the SSRA1 proved to be the industry's lightest, most robust, and most universal-fit anchor point for standing seam roofs. Fall Protection Distributors, L.L.C. was born in 2015, shaping the future of fall protection and instilling confidence in the industry.
